⏩ How to Maintain Parapet Walls
Santa Fe Style homes are probably one of the highest maintenance homes here in Northern Arizona.
The surface of the parapet walls absorb heat quickly, causing the paint to go flat quicker than other surfaces.
When the paint goes flat, there is no barrier between moisture and the surface.
Then it starts to absorb moisture, causing freezing and thawing, and creating cracks from the inside out. If you see discolored streaks along your wall, those are cracks!
It’s not only important to wash and seal the cracks, but to also seal the walls with a waterproofer, along with a couple coats of satin finish on it.
This way, if the sun does break down the first couple coats of satin finish, there is a waterproof layer to protect your home from water damage.
This will prevent water from penetrating the walls, and prevent catastrophic damage in the future.
To learn more about trimming back plants before painting, see Jimmy’s video blog about cutting back plants.

Very professional, first class operation.
Terrific Job! We are very pleased!
As a real estate agent I see (and hear) a lot on interior and exterior painting projects. Pinon Painting exceeded my expectations of their work from beginning to end. The crew was friendly, courteous and easy to have on my property for a number of days. I will definitely recommend them to my clients and others. I will use them again for future painting projects. The compliments keep coming in from the neighbors and others!
Both Mike and Bill were very easy and pleasant to have here. I feel they did an excellent job.
Thank you – great job – we love it!
